An India vs Pakistan cricketing contest is always tense, no matter at which level it is played. As the two cricketing giants squared off in the Under-19 Asia Cup 2023 match on Sunday, an aggressive celebration was witnessed by Pakistan pacer Mohammad Zeeshan. The pacer succeeded in finding the outside edge of the bat of India batter Rudra Patel, with the ball flying into the hands of the Pakistan wicketkeeper Saad Baig. The Pakistan pacer was extremely elated with the wicket but seemed to have let his emotions get the better of him a little.
The incident took place in 12th over. Rudra was looking to punch the ball through the covers but was beaten. The wicket-keeper made no mistake in grabbing the ball after it kissed the India star's bat.
